Arya becomes enraged when her allies are knocked out, making her next attack deal maximum stacks of weakened. When Arya knocks out an enemy, she spawns a pie that will both heal allies and deal slow to enemies.
  • Glass Cannon: Assassins have a high speed and high damage but they lack durability. As a result, assassins take 14% additional damage from all sources.

How to Win as Arya Stark

As is the case with other assassins like Harley Quinn, you may want to consider buffing Arya Stark with Perks because, although fast she takes a lot of damage. Her playstyle is best suited to quick strikes and, if you can pull it off, sharp deadly combos. Remember to use Rolling Slash where possible, as this doubles as a dodge and can also inflict backstab damage. If you're in danger of getting knocked off the stage, Knife Thrower can be used to teleport you back into the arena, although it does have a cooldown so use it intelligently.

Knife Thrower can also be used in combos. Throw your sword at your opponent, then launch them into the air using Upward Slash or Dagger Slash. You can then use your Side Special to teleport towards them, continuing your combo, and even using your Side Special again at the end for a spinning stab while the cooldown is active. Because assassins are powerful, you can inflict a devastating amount of pain, but it's important you remain nimble and only strike when you have an open window, because you will soak up more damage than other characters in combat.

It can be beneficial knowing your opponent's moves as well. This is because performing Face Stealer will allow you to adopt their Neutral Attacks, and you can use this to your advantage by adding unique combo and attack opportunities to your moveset.
